Have you thought about how things could be different in your community? Bring those ideas and join us for a Co-opversation as we explore what it means to build community wealth. La Montanita Co-op has invited the historian and political economist, Gar Alperovitz, to speak at our October annual member meeting. In preparation for his visit we'd like to have some engaging conversations about creating strong, collaborative communities.
Please join us on August 21st in Albuquerque at the Tractor Brewing Company in Wells Park from 5:30pm to 7:00pm for some local brews, rootbeer, and conversation. Learn a little and share a lot! For Gallup folks, there will also be a Co-opversation at Board Member Jake Garrity's home on August 21st. Visit the Gallup co-op for more information.
In September we’ll hold two more Co-opversations, one each in Albuquerque and Santa Fe. Email the Co-op’s Board of Directors at email@example.com with any questions, and keep an eye out for details on our Facebook page and weekly email sales flyer.
When & Where
La Montanita Co-op
La Montanita Co-op is a community-owned, consumer cooperative with three (and a forth coming soon) locations in Albuquerque, one in Santa Fe, and one in Gallup. All stores offer fresh organicproduce, bulk foods, local organic beef, lamb and other meats and cheeses, fair trade products and a wide variety of natural and organic groceries, freshly prepared deli foods, natural body care, vitamins and supplements.
The Co-op continues its decades long commitment to local farmers and producers with its regional Co-op Trade Food-Shed Project. This initiative is creating wholesale markets and providing product pick-up and distribution, supply delivery service and refrigerated storage for local farmers and producers. With over 1100 local products from approximately 400 local producers and 20% of total purchases and sales in local food, the Co-op is a leader in the local foods movement.
While we serve over 14,000 Co-op member owners, we also seek to serve the larger community through ongoing education on the importance of the cooperative economic model and on the links between food, health and the environment.
